Barcelona, Spain, Feb 29, 2012: HiSilicon and Rohde & Schwarz today announced the successful demonstration of DC (dual carriers) and MIMO throughput in HSPA. This marks the world’s first successful demonstration of 84 Mbps WCDMA signals in downlink and 23Mbps in uplink transmission.
Both HiSilicon and Rohde & Schwarz are industry leaders in the development of multi-mode LTE products. They are working together on HiSilicon's pioneering LTE multi-mode chipset solution Balong 710 and Rohde & Schwarz's flexible R&S CMW500 multi-standard conformance test platform to enable the wireless industry to certify and deploy LTE/WCDMA technology successfully and more quickly.
Mr Ai Wei, VP of HiSilicon, says: "Balong 710 is proving to be a great step forward for LTE and WCDMA. There is a great deal of talk in the industry about accelerating LTE roadmaps, but in reality there are very few players with a commercially viable LTE multi-mode chipset solution and HiSilicon is one of these companies. Similarly, Rohde & Schwarz was the first supplier on the market with test solutions for LTE, WCDMA and GSM. We are delighted to be working with them on the ongoing development of their comprehensive test case package which meets the industry's needs for thorough LTE/WCDMA/GSM device testing programs."
